The Connectivity Glove was designed by, Mari Chiba, and featured in the Deep Fall 2014 issue of Knitty. She chose to knit with two different weights to create textural difference. Additionally, knitting the body of the gloves with a heavier weight yarn gives it a little more warmth and makes them faster to knit. Her goal was to create a pattern that would highlight the conductive quality of our SilverSpun® yarn. She wanted a glove that was functionally useful and aesthetically logical. We think Mari hit both points right on the head!
